Train smart, eat well, and enjoy the run.

My Unreasonable Running Goals for the Next 5 Years (don’t judge me)

These are running goals I would like to accomplish within 5 years.

No, they are not reasonable for my current level of fitness.

This is my dream.

Encourage me or keep it to yourself.

Thanks,

P. Mark Taylor

    Those are great goals. Only unreasonable goals makes the impossible possible.

    Why “only” a sub-3 marathon? If you’re shooting at a 1.10 half that would likely put you in the low 2.30s.
